    Seems like a dumb question, but can I paste text from another source into a new post?

    I wrote something up in Word and wanted to just copy and paste it into a post and can't get the "paste" option to come up when I left click my mouse.

    Try 'right' click. If that doesn't show the option, go to "edit", "paste" at the top of the page. I do it all the time. You did 'copy', didn't you? LOL

    also, just hold down your shift key and hit the insert key ...

    Try this:
    Highlight the text.
    Hold Control Key and press the C key once.
    Click in the BOC post window.
    Hold Control Key and press the V key once.
